Area 51 (1996)
You will lose a gun power-up as soon as you shoot one of the other humans.
This is because when you lose a life, you lose your gun; and when you shoot
a human, you lose a life.
When you enter the building from the helicopter, shoot the exit sign when you
see a purple alien, then shoot the first three lights. This gives you the
opportunity to shoot baby aliens before they form.
